Finally, we have Laura & Sophie. Way to go, America, for putting these two in the bottom two! They're singing "Walking on Sunshine," because Jeffrey thinks it will be good to rock them up. Their families enter their rehearsals, and the girls start bawling. Jeffrey says it's a beautiful thing. The girls are ready to work their butts off and make the song perfect. Laura (or Sophie?) rocks an electric guitar. By "rocks" I mean "strums once." The girls try their hardest and there are some good moments in there, but overall the whole thing is, like everything Laura & Sophie, just kind of weird. Jewel tells the girls that given the cool arrangement the song should have been really great. Emphasis on the "should have been." She points out that Sophie (or Laura?) looked like she was about to fall apart in the middle of the song. Sophie (or Laura?) didn't think she was falling apart. John Rich says that these two are some of the sweetest girls ever, but they came off like high school girls at a high school talent show. It's true. They should have waited until the one got rid of her braces before signing up for this competition, at the very least. If the girls happened to win the show, says John Rich, it would be the worst possible thing to happen to them at this point. The music business would chew them up and spit them out, and he doesn't want to see that happen. They're a few years away from becoming superstar material, and right now they're little girls. Jeffrey tells them that he was proud of their work, but if they squeak through this week, they need to really think about how to make this work. The one with the braces is a millisecond away from bursting into tears. It's pretty sad.
